The Pacific Mall Adventure


Sunday seemed like a perfect day to venture to Markham for some monster-sized Pocky's. I ended up at Pacific Mall, which took about 25 mins via car and low traffic from Yonge/Bloor to Steeles/Kennedy.

I've never been to PM before, so this was quite a treat... It's a huge space, with tiny glassy-covered square shops that hold anything from Chinese Medicine, to a Hello Kitty car floor mat. No, that doesn't do it justice... you'll find boots, wrist-bands, music, cell phones, food, candy, spa treatments, teeshirts, extensive car-toys, and my personal favourite: desk-treats. Desk treats include adorable stationary, and small things to play with... including surprise-packs holding miniature plastic foods! I mean, who DOESN'T need this?! I wish they were a bit cheaper as they were $6 a box. I turned my mini-fast food into a fridge magnet, perfect for a Crafty Sunday!

The pricing is strange- you can score on a pair of boots or a purse for under $30, but a single plastic hair pin can run you near $10... It's a bit of a hunt, but good lord it's worth it. I ended up at Chung King for some grub, which is located just outside of the mall for some Hot and Sour soup (meh) and mediocre Mu Shu Pork. Next time, I'll venture upstairs for some take-out instead. Luckily, I have lots of trinkets to tide me over until a future visit.
